About me

I am a BACP Registered Counsellor with many years of professional experience providing counselling to individuals, couples, families, young people and children and specialise in working within the Adoption field.  Accordingly I have current Enhanced DBS Clearances with Barnardos, Croydon Council and Diagrama Children's Charity.

I am experienced in helping people with a wide range of problems such as relationship issues including affairs and family issues, anxiety and General Anxiety Disorder, self harm and suicidal thoughts, loss, depression, trust difficulties and addictions to name but a few.  I am also an Approved Adoption Counsellor offering Adoption Counselling for individuals, children and families and to those also within the care system currently or historically, working together using Attachment Focused Therapy.  I also offer counselling support to Birth Parents and Grandparents where children have been placed for adoption.

More details about me and my work are available on my website.


I work in Private Practice with people from all walks of life providing a safe, confidential setting where you can make sense of your current experiences and be really listened to and understood.  Working together can help you seek different perspectives for choosing a new path through your life. Exploring your current thinking, feelings and patterns of behaviour can be really helpful in experiencing yourself differently and helping you elicit the change you want for yourself.

I offer online counselling through using Zoom platform.

Alongside my private practice in Haywards Heath and Crowborough, I had worked for six years as a Drug and Alcohol Counsellor and as a Primary School Counsellor working with children who demonstrated emotional and behavioural difficulties /  I also worked for a cancer charity providing counselling support to life limited cancer patients, their carers and family members.

I have a special interest and knowledge about Adoption and the care system and currently work for a Local Authority and Independent Adoption Agency in another capacity.

It is important that you find a Counsellor that is right for you, so before deciding, I offer a FREE initial meeting to see if we can both work together.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
